Refund for hotel expenses while property was infestedMake Text Bigger
We are in a dispute with the landlord over money owed.
More than a year ago (about 2 weeks after we moved in), my then pregnant wife and I had to evacuate the property on discovering that it was flee ridden, suffering dozens of flee bites on our bodies. The flees had originated from the previous tenants’ cat. The four days we spent living at a hotel, until the property was fumigated, were at our own expense. No apology or compensation was received.
1. Are we entitled to be reimbursed for the expenses of the hotel after all this time?
2. Can these expenses include restaurant receipts as we were unable to cook?
3. Since the landlord is unlikely to agree to compensate us, how can we go about it? Are we entitled to subtract this sun from our last payment to the landlord?
Many thanks for your advice.
